Educate2Liberate Educate2Liberate

In the College of Education, Health & Society, we believe that education, within and far beyond schooling, is the process through which we come to understand and call out injustice and to work toward transforming all that is not good to us or for us. In this spirit, we organized the Educate2Liberate series as an opportunity for all in EHS to come together and learn our way to better futures.
Educate2Liberate comes at a pivotal moment in history when the voices raised against anti-Black racism, and the dehumanization of Black people and indeed all people of color must not only be heard but strategic action taken guided by the critical content of those voices. I encourage EHS students, staff, faculty, alumni, and the Miami community to openly engage in the Educate2Liberate series, as it is just one of the vehicles charged with fomenting essential societal change toward more justice for more people.

Black Lives Matter: Racial Justice and Education Virtual Panel Discussion
Please join Miami University's Department of Teacher Education for a virtual panel discussion on racial justice and education.
The recent deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, Tony McDade, and countless other Black people have generated new civil rights urgencies in Black communities and spirited academic discourses in and beyond higher education regarding the conditions of Black people in America. Join Black faculty as well as students (both past and present) from the Department of Teacher Education as we discuss both the experiences of Black pre-service teachers and the impacts that these new, yet very familiar, discourses on American race relations have within the field of teacher education.

This panel will be facilitated by Teacher Education faculty member Dr. Nathaniel Bryan and doctoral student Rachel McMillian with alumni and current student panelists: Genesis Ross, Rachel Hollins, Janae Sneed, Sydnie Singleton, Alaysia Plair-Easton, and Jeremy Allen.

To register for this virtual panel, please use the link to complete the form. https://tinyurl.com/EDT-BlackLivesMatter    A separate link to participate will be sent to you closer to the day of the event.

Educate 8:46 (a podcast series)
(Premieres August 1 - Hosted by Denise Taliaferro Baszile)
8 minutes and 46 seconds is the amount of time that officer Derrick Chauvin had his knee on the neck of George Floyd, draining the life from his body. This image has forced this country, this world to reckon with how its history of anti-black violence and racism continue to impact Black lives. While we certainly want justice and now, justice is not enough. The premise of Educate 8:46 is simple--what can we teach and learn in 8 minutes and 46 seconds that can support the struggle against white supremacy and anti-blackness and all related inter-systemic injustices. I asked this question of colleagues and comrades all over the country, whom I know to be fierce warriors for justice through education, and they responded. So each week, we drop knowledge--short lessons, powerful revelations, controversial perspectives, strategies, and freedom dreams all in 8 minutes and 46 seconds. 
 

Crucial Conversations: Education in Support of the Movement for Black Lives

Dr. Denise Taliaferro Baszile will host crucial conversations with a number of scholar-activists on a series of topics related to the struggle against systemic racism.

MEDLIFE MEDLIFE

Date: Wed, Feb 12, 2020 at 5:45 PM
Subject: Student Org Promotion: Education Life
To: KNH Department Office <knhdept@miamioh.edu>

Hello,

My name is Lindsay Douglass, I am an Anthropology and Spanish double major with a Global Health minor here at Miami, and I am reaching out to you to ask if you would be willing to assist me in promoting an amazing opportunity within a Miami student org called MEDLIFE.

MEDLIFE (Medicine, Education, and Development for Low Income Families Everywhere) is a non-profit organization with a mission to build a worldwide movement empowering the poor in their fight for equal access to healthcare, education, and a safe community. MEDLIFE is fighting to achieve their vision of a world free of poverty through Service-Learning Trips, mobile clinics, the MEDLIFE Project Fund, student empowerment, and, most importantly, community collaboration. 

Recently, Miami's MEDLIFE chapter introduced two new specialized communities that focus on the areas of education and dentistry. I am the VP of Education Life, and it is my responsibility to spread the word about our new branch and to recruit members who would be interested in joining our mission. 

Education Life is a product of MEDLIFE's efforts to improve access to quality education in less developed parts of the world, specifically the countries of Peru, Ecuador, and Tanzania, and the local areas surrounding partnering universities. Education Life does this through school construction projects, preventative health workshops, and local outreach. 

Overall, I am reaching out to you because, in order to spread the word on campus and make the impact I know our chapter can make, I need voices much louder than mine. 

I feel as if the students within the College of Education would benefit from being involved in our organization due to the many opportunities they would have to experience education, health, and service in a cross-cultural setting. For example, we will be having an education and health based Service-Learning trip this May to Lima, Peru where students can participate in an immersive and life-changing experience doing education and health promotion projects. 

So, how can you help? 

  • Send out an email with information about Education Life to students within your division/class
  • Have short class-visits where I can come talk to students about Education Life
  • Allow flyers for Education Life to be posted in buildings
  • Hand out information sheets about Education Life 

Below, I have attached a link to an interest form and an information hand out.  

https://forms.gle/M1YGP5N12TbekxnX7

If you are interested in meeting to talk more about Education Life and how you can help us grow as a Student Organization OR if you are able and willing to help us in any of the ways listed above, please respond to this email. 

Your help is greatly appreciated and desired. I hope to hear back from you.

 

Best wishes,--

BS/MS program AND the MS Health Promotion announcement BS/MS program AND the MS Health Promotion announcement

Dear KNH students,

Hello again! For those of your who don't know me, my name is Dr. Paul Branscum, and I'd like to share with you an announcements as you plan for the Spring semester (and even next year!).  

We are currently actively recruiting for both the combined BS/MS program AND the MS Health Promotion concentration of the graduate program in our department.  

Please know that ALL students are eligible for the program.  No matter the major or concentration of your undergraduate degree, if you are interested in getting an MS degree with a concentration in Health Promotion, please come talk with me!  

If you are a Sophomore/Junior, the combined BS/MS program might be a good fit for you.  For this program, you complete your senior year classes in combination with the MS classes, and get to graduate with your MS in only 1 extra year.  I've even had students who planned their senior year out and was able to finish all of the MS requirements within the senior year.  If you are looking at your senior year and thinking you only have a few classes left, the MS program might be a great fit for you!

If you are a graduating senior, unfortunately it is too late to join the combined program, but we still have the MS program that you might be interested in after graduation!

There are many benefits to getting an MS degree if you are considering this option.  First off, you will get specialized knowledge in the Health Promotion/Public Health field, and an opportunity to work closer with a faculty member on a research topic you are passionate about. Second, an MS degree can make you more competitive for jobs when you enter the work-force, and make it easier to transition into more senior level positions if that is something you are interested in. Third, it will enhance your earning potential.  According to the "Education Pays 2016:The Benefits of Higher Education for Individuals and Society" report "Individuals with master's degrees working full time earned 22% more before taxes and took home 21% more, on average, than those whose highest degree was a bachelor's degree."  Finally, the MS program will give you the opportunity to enhance your professional network, by introducing you to national and international conferences where you can meet various individuals in industry and higher education.  

If you are at all interested in our graduate program, please feel free to email me <branscpw@miamioh.edu> and I would be delighted to discuss the program with you.  

Thanks everyone!

ATTN: Prospective Athletic Training Majors

As nationally mandated by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), all accredited professional athletic training education programs are to be offered at the Master's degree level.  Specifically, students must soon earn a Master's degree from a CAATE-accredited professional program in order to be eligible for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination and eventual clinical practice. 

The Athletic Training Program (ATP) here at Miami University is transitioning our Bachelor's level program to a Master's level program.  While the Master's ATP is proposed to launch in fall 2022, procedures to deactivate the undergraduate program already have been set in motion.

Please allow this email to serve as official notification that academic year 2018-2019 will be the final year for admission into the Bachelor's level degree program.  As such, if you intend to apply to the undergraduate ATP, you must enroll in KNH 182 (Introduction to Athletic Training) THIS FALL SEMESTER.  KNH 182 serves as the pre-requisite course for formal admission into the ATP and will be required with the program application DUE APRIL 15, 2019.  The specifics of the application to the ATP are discussed in KNH 182.  Again, the last opportunity to enroll in KNH 182 is fall of 2018 so you must declare AT now if you are interested in becoming an AT major.

  • If interested in majoring in AT, contact Patricia Troesch (troescpj@miamioh.edu) immediately to enroll in KNH 182 for this fall semester.
  • If you have additional questions regarding the ATP, please contact Eric Brooks (brooksek@miamioh.edu).

Thank you and have a wonderful start to your school year.

Just note that the course will not count in the Miami Plan or your Major, however, the 2 credit hours will count towards the minimum of 128 required to graduate.

If a student has any questions or would like to apply for this job, please send a resume and inquiry to kronkp@miamioh.edu   I need to hire about 3 students by the end of July in order to meet the deadlines for Fall Camp. The position begins in early August (dates TBA). Apply quickly because positions will go fast.

You MUST be able to be in Oxford for fall camp. The position generally starts around August 1st. If you do not have living arrangements, they will be made for you to stay in a dorm room until the school year starts. Food is included for the first three weeks of August (3 meals a day).

I would love to hire students who are very familiar with being creative with videos (know about angles, what's the best way to shoot video, knows what works and what doesn't, etc.). These positions will be stationed on the field and in the locker room to shoot footage for the highlight tapes during games.

Thank you

KNH gains new innovative technology KNH gains new innovative technology

Anatomage

New to KNH this academic year, the Anatomage table offers a unique, life-size virtual dissection table with an unprecedented realistic visualization of 3D anatomy and interactivity. Clinical Professor Dean Smith notes that at this time, EHS has the only Anatomage table in Ohio. "This instrument provides a learning tool rarely available to undergrads outside of medical schools," notes Smith.

Programmable Patient: Meti-Man

Also new to KNH this year is "Meti-Man," a patient simulator that can be programmed to display a variety of health conditions ranging from allergic reactions, pneumonia, heart conditions and various symptoms of trauma. Students can monitor Meti-Man's pulse, heartbeat, respirations, pupil dilation and other physiological factors.

"It's a powerful learning tool for our athletic training students," says Dr. Brett Massie, noting that other majors will also benefit from working with the life-like technology.

One of the unique features of Meti-Man, Massie explains, is that the "patient's" symptoms can accelerate if the student is not using the correct treatment. "We plan to videotape these student-patient sessions," says Massie, "so that students can review what they might have done differently to gain more positive results. Obviously, this kind of experimentation is invaluable in preparation for real-world scenarios."

Like the Anatomage table, it is rare that undergraduates in non-nursing or EMT programs have the opportunity to work with this innovation in technology.
